Meet Nina Agdal

Meet Nina Agdal

Originally from Denmark, this 22-year-old, 5-feet-9-inch beauty has been modeling since the age of 14. Nina burst onto the scene when she made her first appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2012 issue. 960 1280

  

From Rookie to Cover

From Rookie to Cover

Just 2 years removed from joining the Sports Illustrated team and being named 2012 "Rookie of the Year," Nina appeared on the memorable Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2014 cover with fellow models Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. 960 1280

  

Shoot Location: Islamorada, FL

Shoot Location: Islamorada, FL

Known for hosting model and celebrity functions, Islamorada is the ideal destination for Beach Week's secluded photo shoot. Situated on a private, white-sand beach, our shoot location — located halfway between Miami and Key West — offers a truly tropical vibe without leaving the country. 960 1280

  

Village of Islands

Village of Islands

Spread across 5 different islands in the Florida Keys, Islamorada, also known as a "Village of Islands," has a population of just over 6,400 people. 960 1280

Quiet on Set!

Between the Wee Beastie production company, Travel Channel, and Nina’s hair and make-up team, about 15-20 people were on set during the 8-hour shoot. 960 1280

  

The Golden Hour

The Golden Hour

Shooting right after sunrise, also referred to as the "golden hour," is optimal for any shoot because the indirect sunlight enhances the photos by providing a redder, softer hue. The golden hour in Islamorada start around 7 a.m., so Nina arrived for her call-time at 5 a.m. 960 1280

Israel

Julie Henderson: “Israel was one of the sexiest shoots I’ve been on. There is something very mysterious about Israel. Being in Israel with gorgeous swimsuits and surrounded by historic ruins made the trip completely surreal.” 960 1280

Spain

Spain

Ariel Meredith: “The sexiest shoot location would have to be Spain. Flamencos dancing in the background while you shoot is pretty sexy! But being in the Bahamas for body painting was the icing on the cake … we were NUDE ... sexy, sexy!” 960 1280

Zambia

Zambia

Genevieve Morton: “My sexiest shoot location was in Zambia, because it brought out my wild side and pushed me to limits I didn’t think I could go to. However, Australia also challenged me because it was simple enough to bring about a sex appeal that was raw and new.” 960 1280

Kaui, Hawaii

Kaui, Hawaii

Emily DiDonato: “I would say Kauai, Hawaii, because it has a lot of beautiful rural land that meets the water. I shot at the beach and also deep in the forest and it felt really wild and untouched, which I thought was sexy.” 960 1280

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Natasha Barnard: “Without a doubt Whitehaven Beach in Australia. We got there by seaplane and I can’t even begin to describe how magical it was. It’s like a deserted island with baby-powder sand and it’s right on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. Humidity and wet sand made this shoot really sexy!” 960 1280

Namibia

Namibia

Adaora: “My sexiest shoot location was in Namibia. One of the shots involved me wearing a tiny 2-piece bikini in bed, which was situated near the balcony of a tented lodge. The walls were rolled up so I basically had an open backdrop of red sand, swaying brush, magnificent hills, the radiant sun and even a few wildlife! So sexy!” 960 1280

St. Lucia

St. Lucia

Hannah Davis: “Sexiest shoot location had to be St. Lucia. The beaches were stunning and secluded! The pitons made the perfect backdrop! Reminds me of where I grew up in the Virgin Islands.” 960 1280

Zambia

Zambia

Irina Shayk: “Every year, the locations get sexier and sexier. It was Zambia last year and I had to get wild, handling a cheetah on a leash and surrounded by wild zebras. Shooting in Spain this year, it was a beautiful and steamy 120 degrees. Regardless of the location, you can’t help but feel sexy because all you wear is a small bikini!” 960 1280

Exuma, Bahamas

Exuma, Bahamas

Anne V: “The sexiest location I have ever shot in was while body painting in Great Exuma, Bahamas. There’s nothing more beautiful and sexy than miles and miles of the whitest sand, warm turquoise water and the most spectacular sunsets! This paradise definitely brings out your inner beauty and sex appeal.” 960 1280
